So long

May 29th, 2010 · 2 Comments

Due to the lack of time I have for this blog, I’ll be letting it go when it expires toward the end of June.  Thanks for reading and sorry I couldn’t make time for it but between work, personal projects, family/friends and 3 other blogs something has to give. I’ll be keeping so you […]

Cheesecake Factory

March 7th, 2010 · 3 Comments

We got a gift certificate to the Cheesecake Factory so we headed over to the Natick Mall (I refuse to call it the Collection).  Normally we avoid the mall because it always seems to be so crazy but we went at 6pm on a Tuesday night and got sat immediately. Cheesecake Factory always reminds me a […]

Charles River Coffee House

February 26th, 2010 · No Comments

My friend and I met at the Charles River Coffee House for…coffee.  It’s a nice little shop at 57 Eliot St. in Natick across from the library. I haven’t been there in a long time, actually since it was Clever Monk Coffee which was a few years ago now. Inside is small but manages to accommodate about 15 seats.  Perfect […]

So…happy New Year.  I won’t get into the usual “I haven’t updated because I’ve been so busy” thing.  I do intend on keeping this blog and I’ll update it when I can and as usual, hopefully that will be more often. ANYway…I had a precious weekday off and thought it would be nice to meet a […]

MacArthur’s Farm

December 16th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Last week we went looking for a place to get a “kissing ball” for the hook on our front steps that we usually hang a plant from in nice weather. We too a drive down rt. 126 to Ashland figuring the Higgin’s Family (next to Nick’s restaurant) or the Lion’s (or Elk’s, I forget) club who both […]

The Oregon Club

December 6th, 2009 · No Comments

I’ve always wanted to go to the Oregon Club but never got around to it.  I think it was just last year, Ethan and I finally decided to go and found out it was closed(!).  We were happy to hear the former speakeasy re-opened this year and went down one night recently to check it […]

PF Changs

November 15th, 2009 · 8 Comments

Ah, it’s happened again where time slips away from me and the blog. I’ve been so busy at work that I haven’t had time to really get out and about the Metrowest area much. I was going through some photos I took a couple of months ago and found this one I took of PF […]

Szechuan Garden

October 28th, 2009 · 1 Comment

My mom and I went to one of our favorite restaurants, Szechuan Garden in Medway. We haven’t been in a while but when we have gone in the past it’s always for the buffet. Not only is the food good but they really shine with their soups. My mom always gets the Hot and Sour: […]

Jack in the Box

October 21st, 2009 · 3 Comments

I’ve always associated the fast-food chain “Jack in the Box” with the western and southern states but I guess once upon a time Jack lived out here too. I recently found this old coupon in a table in my mom’s basement which expired in 1980. (click on the image for close up) This coupon states Jack’s location […]

Sweet Meadow Farm

October 18th, 2009 · 3 Comments

I posted before about Iron Horse Farm which was my usual place to get eggs.  The only problem with that place is that often if I don’t get there early enough I pull into the driveway to see the note on the fridge saying they’re out of eggs.  Sometimes even when I AM early enough […]

Yay, it’s finally my favorite month, October! I’m excited that the Framingham History Center is running their Haunted Halloween Trolley Tour. Below are some details from their website: “Take a 45 minute trolley ride through Framingham’s mysterious past. Costumed actors tell true stories “dug up” and verified by author James L. Parr during a tour […]

Tougas Farm

September 27th, 2009 · No Comments

Today I was determined to get some small pumpkins for above our front door. We usually go to Mac’s Apples up in Londonderry, NH but since it was rainy we decided to take a trip to Northborough to Tougas Farm. I’ve never been here before but I have heard people rave about it. We got […]

Five Guys Burgers and Fries

September 20th, 2009 · 6 Comments

Today we went to Marlborough and had lunch at a fairly new burger place called Five Guys.  This branch of the multi-state chain is at 197 Boston Post Rd. Inside is clean and red and white color themed: I like the open kitchen and they seem to have an efficiently run system for getting the […]

Button Box

As Laraine pointed out on my “About” page, it’s been a whole month and a half in between posts. I feel bad because I’d love to update weekly, which doesn’t sound like a lot but between two other blogs and all summer I was looking for a full-time job, which is a full-time job in […]

Pejamajo Cafe

July 15th, 2009 · 5 Comments

A friend and I checked out the newly opened Pejajamo Cafe in Holliston. As I’ve mentioned before, when I grew up in Holliston, there was very little for food options besides pizza and subs so it’s very impressive to see a crepe place that serves lattes and alcohol. Inside is cute, simple but kind of […]
